This package is a pre-cursor, helper package to opensm, the InfiniBand subnet
manager.  It relies upon the libibumad package this bug was cloned from.

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2008-06-28 11:01:12 EDT
Hi Doug, here's a quick review:

+ source matches upstream SHA1SUM:
    1a2b36d0f309690ad660c9c1ff177f76c2484104  libibcommon-1.1.0.tar.gz
    1a2b36d0f309690ad660c9c1ff177f76c2484104  libibcommon-1.1.0.tar.gz.UP
+ license is correct and correctly included in the main package
+ specfile looks clean and macros sane
+ proper use of ldconfig
+ *.la files are removed
+ proper use of -devel and -static
+ has %clean
+ builds in mock F8 x86_64
+ rpmlint reports just two ignore-able warnings:
    libibcommon-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
    libibcommon-static.x86_64: W: no-documentation
+ dir ownership looks good
+ permissions look good

- according to the review guidelines, the spec must have:
    rm -rf %{buildroot}
  or the equivalent at the start of %install section.
- Is the ExclusiveArch really necessary?  Could it just be deleted?
  I'm only asking because the review guidelines now include specific
  rules concerning ExcludeArch and, if the ExclusiveArch is removed,
  then I think the package will be fine wrt those guidelines.  Maybe
  a comment such as "is known to work on arches ... but has not been
  tested on ..." would be enough?

Please ignore comment #1 above.

I'm trying to review the IB-related packages and I accidentally pasted 
the above comment into this bz entry.  My apologies!

Perhaps I can paste the correct review notes into the little Firefox text 
box this time.  Let's watch and see how it goes...

+ source matched upstream SHA1SUM:
    743b35ca9257cf8f5f3d022df6161acc31301994  libibmad-1.2.0.tar.gz
    743b35ca9257cf8f5f3d022df6161acc31301994  libibmad-1.2.0.tar.gz.UP
+ license is correct and correctly included
+ builds locally on F8 x86_64 w/ libibumad-devel installed
+ proper use of ldconfig
+ the *.la are deleted
+ permissions and dir ownership look good
+ rpmlint reports these two ignore-able warnings:
    libibmad-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
    libibmad-static.x86_64: W: no-documentation

- please remove the ExclusiveArch:
- please add "rm -rf %{buildroot}" or equivalent to the 
  beginning of %install

Yup, I think that was the one.  [*shakes head slowly and walks away*]
